The Albert Baker Fund – An Opportunity to Serve

 

Adventure Unlimited and The Albert Baker Fund (ABF) have a deep appreciation for our shared values, and the way that our missions bless so many in our Christian Science family.

 

This is especially true with our newest programs. When Adventure Unlimited launched the National Leadership Council (NLC), ABF stood with us from the outset, providing encouragement and substantial financial support to help bring this wonderful idea to fruition. With every class, DiscoveryBound’s (DB) NLC program is proving the power and value of meaningful connections between outstanding program participants and adult mentors.

 

When The Albert Baker Fund first presented the ABF Career Alliance, Adventure Unlimited immediately recognized the benefits of “a career alliance for the extended Christian Science community”, especially if those who love and value Adventure Unlimited were to become involved. We also saw how it would bless our young alumni and the summer staff at the A/U Ranches. As the Career Alliance progresses, we’re seeing that ABF Career Allies, like DB NLC mentors, are making a big difference in the lives of young people.

 

The Career Alliance needs individuals who can share their own career experience and insights with new college graduates and those in a mid-career transition. It’s often a simple phone conversation, but it can be immensely helpful to someone just starting out or navigating a new course. ABF’s Career Allies are also finding it incredibly satisfying to help others in this way.

 

The ABF Career Alliance is a tremendous way to build connections that strengthen our community, including the Adventure Unlimited family. We encourage you to to take these steps to get involved:

  • Go to www.abfcareeralliance.org and click the gray oval “Sign up to become a Career Ally”,
  • Create a New Account, and save your Profile,
  • Post a Connection to offer an informational interview; this step is vital as it opens the door to help another.

For all that you’re doing for us at Adventure Unlimited and our broader community, we are deeply grateful!

DETAILS

Saturday, February 17, 2018

9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The Leaves
1230 W. Spring Valley
Richardson, TX 75080

Please register by Feb. 9. Registration instructions are at the bottom of this page.

Cost $25.00

Mary Baker Eddy says the Christian Science Bible Lesson is “…a lesson on which the prosperity of Christian Science largely depends.” Church Manual Art III, Sect. 1 (31:4)

While the bylaw is directed toward Readers in our churches, it’s also important for every student of Christian Science to thoroughly understand and effectively read—audibly and silently—our Bible Lessons.

This unique seminar will benefit any student of Christian Science

Readers (former, current and future), the general membership, regular church attendees,

and senior Sunday School students.

You’ll receive tools that will help you:
  • deepen your scholarly understanding

  • elevate scholarly understanding to heartfelt understanding

  • gain the freedom to express the spirit of the word with heartfelt fervor

You’ll also learn about the reading standards set by Mary Baker Eddy and the Holy Bible, and get ideas about how our Bible Lessons can help us become better healers and ensure the prosperity of our church.

We’ll explore:

  • Some of the more serious barriers that animal magnetism attempts to impose on our understanding of God’s Word, and on our reading from our platforms.

  • The standards of effective reading—straight from the Hoy Bible and from our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy.

  • How to set God’s word free from the pages on which it was written.

Both silent and oral readers will receive expressive reading “Tools for Understanding” that will help us:
  • Improve a scholarly understanding of the text, and elevate that scholarly understanding to a more spiritual dimension of heartfelt understanding of God’s word.

  • Identify clues writers have left—clues that reveal important insights into God’s inspiration.

  • Pay special attention to the nuances created by the writers choice of words and the structure of their writing.

  • Gain a clearer and deeper understanding of the heart and soul of the writer’s work.

We’ll also receive expressive reading “Tools for Delivery” that will help us:
  • Use all our God-given communication tools to the best of our abilities.

  • Deliver inspired messages with the same depth of feeling and richness of expression with which the writer might have actually spoken the words.

  • Eliminate self-consciousness and learn how to “get yourself out of the way.”

The $25 cost of this seminar includes lunch and a PDF copy of the 220-page book,

Principles of Expressive Reading, by Don Feldheim.

Outreach to Prisons

Learn to Pray and Heal (a spiritual adventure) Jan 20 in Irving

 

Are prayer and healing for you?

I mean, if you have no experience with spirituality or religion, or you’re not even sure what you think about God, can you still pray and be healed?

Yes. Because prayer and healing are natural to us, and I say this as one who didn’t even grow up in a religious household. But what I’ve discovered as I’ve studied Christian Science is that a willingness to shift perspectives, to see things in a new, more spiritual way, has an effect–for anyone.

Like in the case of an inmate I worked with. As I shared the basics of Christian Science with him he said it all sounded great but he was just a bad person. He seemed pretty convinced that healing wasn’t for him. But as we talked about the fact that he wasn’t defined by his past, but by God, his source, who is completely good, I could tell his thought about himself was changing.

And then he wanted more. So he took a copy of the Bible and Mary Baker Eddy’s book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, back to his cell and started to dive into these books. Six or seven weeks later, I ran into him again and he told me that he’d been healed of a serious illness–just from studying the Bible and Science and Health. His study helped him grasp God and his life in a new way and his disease was cured.

In my lecture, I’ll share more about the fundamentals of effective prayer, as I’ve learned from studying Christian Science, as well as how healing is truly possible for everyone.

This Christian Science Lecture given by Nate Frederick, a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship, will be
